Elisa here from the design team for Paper Rose Studio with my latest project featuring loads of awesome goodies including the new Circle Mandala Die and Monochromatic 12x12 paper pack.
On a recent crafting getaway with my buddy Tanya Froud, she handed me this photo of her gorgeous daughter Emily and a challenge to use pink/yellow and orange in a layout. Challenge accepted!
I wanted the bring out the mandala from the photo onto the page and keep a lot of the monochromatic black and white tones and add a smattering of those - holy heck neon colours!
I used a rubber brayer to add my colour to the page, i find the brayer can add texture and patterns with only a few passes across the page.
I love the look of the cement ink cube (subtle grey) through a stencil onto white cardstock and then cut the piece into an interesting shape to add dimension and interest behind your photo.
This layout has become a firm favourite of mine!
Dylusions Neon Flip Top paint:
Tropical Sangria, Lemon Drop, Mango Punch
Colourblast Artist inks in Slipper and Citrus
That's it from me today, hope you have been inspired to try the challenge colours!
